|Thank you for your interest in Hackley School. We hope the information on these pages will inspire you to visit us and allow us to show you in person what makes Hackley so special. |
You will see that Hackley’s unsurpassed academic excellence stems from our brilliant faculty, whose passion for their subjects knows no bounds – certainly it doesn’t stop at the classroom door. Our students see their teachers at breakfast, lunch and dinner, in the many study areas scattered across the campus, at after-school study sessions and during free periods on the Quad or in the courtyard.
And you will experience the sense of community that exists alongside the rigor of the classroom. At Hackley, Upper School students line up and cheer for Lower Schoolers parading in Halloween costumes; student council members attend the girls’ soccer playoffs; football players watch their quarterback play sax in the jazz concert; the senior boarder opens his room to underclassmen looking for a quiet place to study.
But don’t take our word for it. Come visit our beautiful campus and meet our students, whose enthusiasm for the Hackley experience is irrepressible. We actively seek students who understand that just as a bit of hard work at one’s studies yields exponential intellectual growth, so too taking the time to be a friend whenever you can will bring friendship back to you dozens of times over.
We look forward to meeting you.
